Check Out Audi e-Tron 50 Quattro Electric SUV , Lighter & Cheaper

Audi recently unveiled its all-electric SUV, the e-Tron, and the model has now received a new entry-level version for the international markets. The basic version is called Audi e-Tron 50 Quattro and is the lighter and cheaper version of the SUV, which also
offers a cheaper price. This was made possible in particular by the use of a smaller battery compared to that used in the e-Tron 55 variant, which enables a weight saving of around 120 kg compared to the curb weight of 2565 kg. The 71 kWh lithium-ion battery that limits the range in the WLTP test cycle to 300 km with a single charge.

The new battery consists of 324 prism cells, which are grouped into 27 modules in the Audi e-Tron 50 Quattro. The smaller battery paired with the same electric motor as the higher specification model, while the maximum charging power is limited to 120 kW, which is lower than the more powerful model compatible with 150 kW chargers. In comparison, the e-Tron 55 consumes a 95 kWh battery and promises a 100 km greater range than the e-Tron 50. Nevertheless, the lower version can still charge up to 80 percent in half an hour via a fast charging network
According to Audi, the power-train has been reinstated to increase efficiency, and the high voltage system has also changed. The lower weight also reduces the driving resistance, which further improves the efficiency of the electric SUV. The 95 kWh battery of the e-Tron 55 alone weighs 700 kg. The automaker has not revealed the weight of the new battery.

In the powertrain, the Audi e-Tron 50 Quattro with 308 hp and 5 40 Newton meters of top torque also reduces the power. The power drops by 94 hp, while the torque is also taken from the 664 Nm of the e-Tron 55, 0-100 km/h are reached in 7 seconds, while the maximum speed is electronically limited to 190 km/h. As the name implies, power is transmitted to all four wheels via the automaker's four-wheel drive system. The e-Tron 50 also features regenerative braking and a range of higher-level connectivity features.
